About Virgin Media broadband

So you've decided to get a broadband deal from Virgin Media – good choice. You'll soon benefit from Virgin Media Broadband's excellent speeds and high degree of reliability, provided via an outstanding router with a host of extra features.

What follows here are the answers to the most common questions and sticking points customers coming new to Virgin Media typically have in mind before being able to choose a deal with confidence.

Key factors to consider when choosing a Virgin Media Broadband deal

There are a number of things you should consider when choosing a Virgin Media broadband deal. Here's a brief overview, followed by each factor in more detail. These factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Broadband speed: How fast you want or need has a bearing both on the smooth running of your household internet connection, and how much you're going to find your self paying. Getting this right is important
  • Price: Closely linked to speed it's a good idea to have a budget in mind. What do you need? Yes, but also what can you afford?
  • Contract length: All Virgin Media Broadband deals are 18 months, but if you delve deep into the Virgin Media website you will also find one-month, no contract deals. These come, however, at excruciatingly high prices – you pay a lot to be able to get out whenever you like
  • Number of devices in your home: Speed is obviously important, but it also follows that the faster you go, the more devices the supplied router will be able to deal with
  • Availability: Virgin Media is only available to around 60% of UK homes. You can check whether it's available where you live by entering your postcode at the top of this page
  • Special offers, rewards, cashback and bill credit: Virgin Media frequently offers deals with a little something extra included. Keep your eyes peeled for those
  • Bundles: It's usually going to be cheaper to bundle a TV package with your Virgin Media Broadband than to get one separately from a different provider such as Sky. Since its merger with O2, Virgin Media also offers the ability to bundle SIMs into your package, again potentially saving you money

Choosing the right Virgin Media Broadband speed

It is incredibly easy to get either a package that comes with more speed than you need or not enough. When it comes to too much speed, Virgin Media tends to oversell the usefulness of its fastest packages, while at the other end of the scale, it can be tempting to save as much money as possible and find yourself hitting bottlenecks in your home's internet use.

Here is a quick overview of the speeds you should ideally be looking at, depending on the needs of your home and those that live there:

Broadband users Type of broadband Speeds
1-2 people ADSL 30Mbps
3-4 people Fibre 60-250Mbps
5+ people Fibre 100-500Mbps
Gamers or streamers Fibre 60-1000Mbps

Now, Virgin Media Broadband speeds start and finish much faster than what is typically recommended. Virgin Media offers the following:

Broadband Package Download Speed Upload Speed Monthly Cost
M50 Fibre Broadband + Calls 54Mbps 5Mbps £28 per month
M125 Fibre Broadband 132Mbps 20Mbps £26.50 per month
M250 Fibre Broadband 264Mbps 25Mbps £30.50 per month
M350 Fibre Broadband 362Mbps 36Mbps £34.50 per month
M500 Fibre Broadband 516Mbps 52Mbps £38.50 per month
Gig1 Fibre Broadband 1.1Gbps 104Mbps £41 per month
Gig2 Fibre Broadband 2Gbps 200Mbps £84 per month

So where do you start figuring out which is right? Our advice is simply to consider what you need versus what you want. Virgin Media's M125 package, which offers download speeds of 132Mbps is plenty for most households. It's already twice as fast as your typical superfast fibre broadband deal. So why do these other, crazy-fast speeds exist?

The simple answer is busy households and downloads. Very busy households with many household members should go for faster speeds, because you never know when one or two people might be hogging the connection to download a film or a game. And you may even wish to consider something like Gig1 if you download videogames a lot as it considerably cuts down on the time you'll spend waiting.

Realistically though, most households will manage just fine on M125, so that's where we recommend is the place to start. You can always upgrade your speed further down the line if you need it.

Benefits of Virgin Media Broadband

Virgin Media Broadband offers a number of benefits compared to most competitors. Virgin Media runs its own network using a different technology to other providers, which is why packages aren't directly comparable to providers like Sky, BT and TalkTalk.

Virgin Media has had things its own way for a decade now in terms of being the fastest widely available provider. But that's no longer the case. EE Broadband offers speeds up to 1.6Gbps to those who can receiver Full Fibre on Openreach. However, there is very limited use for speeds that fast, and only about one in three households live somewhere it's available.

Here are the benefits of signing up to Virgin Media Broadband deal in 2024:

  • Fast Speeds: Virgin Media offers some of the fastest broadband speeds in the UK, ensuring seamless streaming, gaming, and downloading. It is not the fastest anymore – that crown belongs to EE Broadband. But, importantly, you're twice as likely to be able to get it where you live
  • Reliability: Virgin Media Broadband is famously reliable, and is always near the top of providers when it comes to uptime and dealing with faults if they occur
  • A lot of speeds to choose from: Virgin Media offers a variety of broadband packages to suit different needs and budgets, ensuring there's an option for everyone
  • Inclusive extras: Many Virgin Media broadband deals come with additional perks, especially if you're considering bundling with TV and/or a mobile SIM
  • Value for money: Despite offering premium services, but because its broadband packages are broadly faster than competitors, you tend to get more speed for your money
  • Excellent bundles: Virgin Media often offers bundled deals that combine broadband with TV, mobile, and a home phone if you need one

Virgin Media Broadband: Which router will I get?

Virgin Media does not, sadly, supply the same router no matter which speed you choose, with slower speeds offering a lower-specced device than higher speed packages. Here's a quick overview:

Router Package (speed)
Hub 3 M125 / M250 / M350 / M500
Hub 4 Gig1 Fibre (early rollout)
Virgin Media Hub 5 Gig1 Fibre (later rollout)
Virgin Media Hub 5x Gig2 Fibre (on trial rollout)

We won't go into the individual specs of these router here – you can read all the detail in our comprehensive guide to Virgin Media routers. However, a good rule of thumb is that the higher the number (Hub 3, 4, 5 etc.) the better the specification. So that's faster wifi speeds to more devices, broadly speaking.

You'll notice that in actual fact you won't be able to get a Hub 4 anymore as this device was only used during the initial early rollout of the Gig1 package, and was quickly superseded by the Hub 5. Likewise the top-specced router, the Hub 5x, is only available to Gig2 (2Gbps broadband) customers, which is still in the early stages of rollout and only available to a handful of homes.

Virgin Media contracts – what you need to know

Again, we won't go into all of the detail here because we have an extensive guide solely focused on Virgin Media contracts. However, here are the basic things you need to be aware of:

Contract length

All contracts are 18 months unless you go delving for a super-expensive one-month rolling contract. Contracts are legally binding after the cancellation/cooling off period expires, meaning if you need to leave the contract early you will have to pay the contract out to the end regardless. That even applies if you move house, and the place you're moving to cannot get Virgin Media! Just be aware.

Equipment return

In the terms of the contract all equipment is loaned to you, not bought and not given. This means that when you leave Virgin Media or upgrade a piece of equipment you will have to return your old equipment to Virgin Media. Virgin Media makes this quite easy – it'll send you a box to pack it in with pre-paid postage for its return, or if you're getting an upgrade you can give it to the engineer when they visit.

Your cancellation rights

According to the terms of your contract you have the right to cancel your contract up to 14 days from the day you sign up and receive your contract. This is called the 'cooling off period' and is required by law. If this period passes and you need to cancel, you will be financially responsible for the entire remainder of the contract.

Virgin Media Broadband special deals and offers

If you're looking at the table above, you'll probably see that some deals packages something over and above the basic deal. Around the time of writing, this is various amounts of bill credit (which is knocked off your first few bills often making the fist one to three months essentially free), and in the case of bundles, Virgin Media was offering a free LG TV if you don't fancy the bill credit, on some bundles.

These sorts of offers change regularly throughout the year, so the above is just an example. but it's worth looking out for special deals and they're often offering a bonus or some variety of money off thats meaningful and not to be sniffed at.
